April Update

Dear neighbours,  

With April coming to an end, I am happy to update you on all the events that have happened in our community.

Be sure to visit the photo section on my website, or visit my page on Facebook, to see pictures from activities in the community and to stay up to date on events.

Delivering Results…

On April 17th, I was pleased to announce that our government and Metrolinx will be bringing Regional Express Rail (RER) to the Barrie GO rail network. The new six-kilometre section of track will run adjacent to the existing track between York University GO Station and Rutherford GO Station and will bring:

  • Two-way, all-day 15-minute service or better on weekdays, evenings and weekends between Aurora and Union Station
  • 30-minute peak period, peak direction service on weekdays between Allandale-Waterfront and Union Station
  • Two-way, 60-minute service on weekdays, evenings and weekends between Allandale-Waterfront and Union Station
  • Electrified service on the entire line

With more train trips, the Barrie GO line will move people faster and easier, so you’ll spend less time getting there, and more time being there.

Until next time…

There are many opportunities to recognize extraordinary individuals in our community. And I encourage you to nominate those in our community who deserve to be awarded for their hard work and dedication.

Some of these honours and award programs include:

Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship recognizes individuals who have made exceptional, long-term contributions to the well-being of their communities. 

Lincoln M. Alexander Award honours youth who have demonstrated leadership in eliminating racial discrimination in Ontario.

Ontario Senior Achievement Award recognizes individuals who, after the age of 65, have made significant contributions to their communities.
Be sure to check out the Honours and Awards Secretariat website for more information. 

All the best,


Keep in Mind...
